Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference…

Dear URI Members,
The Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference is taking place at the United Nations throughout the month of May.  The URI was a co-sponsor for an Interfaith convocation for the abolition of nuclear weapons titled,  "For Peace and Human Needs Disarm Now!"  It was held at the UN Church Center on Sunday, May 2 to begin the month long conference with prayer and reflection.   Please add your prayers for success on the NPT throughout May.  This is a major opportunity for nuclear weapons reductions...
The NPT meetings are chaired by the new Ambassador from the Philippines,H. E. Libran N. Cabactulan.  The UN website for the conference is: http://www.un.org/en/conf/npt/2010/index.shtml
Jonathan Granoff was part of the Stanford meetings for the URI and has been dedicated to contorling and abolishing nuclear weapons through use of law throughout his career.  He is the President of Global Security Institute (GSI), http://www.gsinstitute.org
One of the programs of GSI is the Middle Powers Initiative that is "dedicated to the worldwide reduction and elimination of nuclear weapons, in a series of well-defined stages accompanied by increasing verification and control."  They held a recent meeting in Atlanta with former US President and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Jimmy Carter to prepare for this NPT Conference.  The Atlanta Report can be found at http://www.middlepowers.org/index.html
I am also sharing a link to the newsletter from the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation with many topics and additional links for those who would like to learn more about this important issue and conference.

This is a most critical time for all of us. We can collectively help chart a new course in history with prayers, government contacts and with your caring to include this important issue in your work.  Nuclear weapons touch every life.  For members in those few countries that have nuclear weapons, we need to reframe what security means and let our governments know that nuclear weapons do not make anyone more safe.   Mutually assured destruction is not a viable choice for the future.
May Peace Prevail on Earth,
Monica Willard
URI NGO Main Representative to the UN
